Toyota has exhausted all avenues at this stage and there is nothing more Toyota can do for us. What I have to do is to stop it and wait for a while, and it then starts working properly again. This situations has already happened to me 6 times. I have now put in a complaint to Toyota Australia as there vehicle will not do what they advertise in towing capacity. Hi Stoney, I have no good news for you mate.
Something to do with faulty copper seals between 2006 and 2008, not only Hilux's but Landcruisers also. Has anyone experienced this before? We are up to 22000 klms now and still trying to sort the trans problem. I need some guidance and advises please. So what happens now is, when we are in need of the trans to hold the gear for a bit longer so i can get over the slight rise in the road or if there is a slight wind so it wont hold top gear, i can flick the switch and it holds gear like a manual but you have to not let it labor to much or the trans will drop back 1 full gear. What this means is that they are trying to worm there way out of the problem. It is then a matter of poking along at 50-60 kph for about 10 mins or pull over and let it cool down for 5 mins.
Please let me know if you have any success with solving the problem. I think she needs some re-wiring done. Be careful that if you do not know how to reset it, the light won't go away. They also recommended that at my expense they would fit a transmission cooler,You buy a 55000+ car and start fixing it at your own expense? Is it normal that the light appears at the moment of starting and then goes away? Hi all - new to this site and seriously need to pick your brains and ask for advice! We complained after the fist trip and every trip since. I have had a lady tell me that they jump started a car using her 2006 hilux and it has blown the main 50amp fuse. There was brass shavings in the pan. Nah at idle it sounds a little lumpy, like an old cammy 4 cylinder petrol powered vehicle , the gear stick also rocks.
Jan 31, 2014 There can be several reasons for this. The same happened to me and the most probable thing is that water entered the front end assembly, on the driver's side. If I lock the converter then it goes back below 70degC. We have spent easy another 30 grand after purchase. Under system click on electrical distribution , under subsystem click on junction block. Our car was released in 2012.
With the extra power it definitely holds 4th gear going up a raise towing a camper trailer weighing about 800kgs + a truck full of humans and gear. Go to free wiring diagrams! Driving from Chinchilla to Gold Coast, disaster struck in Toowoomba halfway home. That weekend i went from Adelaide to Berrie fine on the way up once again on the way back trans did the whole 3rd thing. What I'd like to know is - is there any point whatsoever in me writing a letter to Toyota? I think installing both these options would solve all your issues and keep the transmission in good shape for many years. Good news, you are not alone. We complained after the fist trip and every trip since.
I know that it has to do with the timing belt; the previous owner changed it at its 75000 miles and I changed it as well, just in case, at its 17000 miles. It's another new release with a bloody 5 speed automatic transmission??? And ours was the new face lift??? I took it to the agency, where I was told it was the clutch, which comes with a particular adjustment and on inclined roads that usually happens. Bad news we have the same model Hilux and also the same problem. Of the 8 we currently have at work, the cd players mp3 capability fail at 40000kms, the air conditioners leak water into the cabin at 60000+km which Toyota seem to be unable to determine why, always talking about tech bulletins and this is the scariest…. Hi , couple of questions, 1. Unless you use the car to tow or drive into wind you wouldn't have a clue.
After three seconds, it disappears. A compression test when the engine is cold would reveal if the piston rings are worn. We hardly use the switch but it is good to know it's there. I decided not to use it, so I simply turned the engine off. .
We have had huge amount of fuel savings since we changed the valve body also. And they did they did the update????. I have read that it is necessary to reset it, should I do so and that's it? We have spent easy another 30 grand after purchase. I pulled over switched it off for a few minutes and restared it again and the light turned off and it was fine. We love the car again. We normally get vehicles serviced at Cessnock Toyota but it has been a little busy of late.
